Let me tell you about my weekend.
Many of my readers are also readers of Candy's blog, Keeping the Home. A year ago I contacted her to tell her I wanted to give her my fuzzi bunz cloth diapers for her baby girl as mine how outgrown them. Well, they are adventurous people and wanted to drive down to us to get them! So instead, since gas is costly, we met halfway. We spent a great day with each other, as our children are all around the same ages and our husbands are both very, very much alike.
A year passes and we were taking a trip up there way anyways for a family reunion, so I invited myself to stay with them while we were there :) Yes, I spent the night at Candy's house, LOL :) We all camped out in the living room.
I just wanted to say, that reading words on paper in no way communicates what a person is really like. I have found this out by meeting Candy. She may appear very strict and matter of fact on the screen or even tough. She is not. She is always laughing, smiling, and very playful. Her children are like any other kids- love to play and get excited- but they are well behaved and polite. One of the cutest things was when it was bedtime, her oldest boy was reading the Bible to my middle daughter (both strong willed children- they got along well together). I just thought it was so neat that his choice of a 'bedtime story' was reading the Bible. And she sat and listened :)
Anyways, we got there early Saturday afternoon and headed off to a little waterpark thing- a free one where there are sprayers and water guns and fountains that just spray water. It was so windy though that even if you weren't in the park part, you still got soaked because the wind carried the water so far. We all got some nice sunburns, LOL. Then we met some friends of theirs and went to a restaurant- yeah, 17 people and only 6 of them adults!
Then we watched a wonderful movie and chatted till after 1 am Sunday morning :) I tasted Candy's amazing bread for breakfast and it was good! I've never had 100% whole bread that tasted really good. And then we had to say goodbye. It stinks that some of my nicest friends are online and I can't ever 'see' them. Oh well...
So, today I am trying to get life back to normal with laundry and very tired children. Must get back to business :)
